Batman: Arkham Origins gets free mobile game, courtesy of NetherRealm Studios
If you're the type that can't ever have enough Batman in his life, then get excited. Oh, but you'll need an iOS device first. Warner Bros. announced a Batman: Arkham Origins mobile game at NYCC this weekend. The game, developed by NetherRealm studios, the team behind Mortal Kombat and Injustice: Gods Among Us, will play more like a fighting game.
The Batman: Arkham Origins mobile game pits players, as Batman, against a number of DC Comics’ most deadly assassins as they fight their way through Gotham City’s most dangerous locales. As gamers progress, they can upgrade their character to become the most punishing crime fighter in the world by unlocking a number of unique Batsuits and earning in-game currency and rewards. In addition, those who also own the console versions of the game and are registered for a Warner Bros. ID (WBID) account will be able to access exclusive content not available elsewhere.
Ed Boon, Creative Director of NetherRealm Studios stated:
“We created an integrated gaming ecosystem between the Batman: Arkham Origins mobile and console games, which delivers rewards and unlocks that provide greater experiences for players. The mobile game goes hand-in-hand with what is offered on the other platforms.”
You can look forward to the mobile game on iOS devices around the console game's launch window, while Android devices will have to wait until the Holidays. The game will be completely free.
